President Tsai Ing-wen held a press conference Monday morning on the third anniversary
of her election. She highlighted many of her accomplishments over the past three years, saying that she has acted in the interest of Taiwan’s long-term future. Tsai says that Taiwan will reap the benefits of her efforts in the coming years.
Tsai sums up her achievements in ten points, including: wage hikes, increased investment, pension reform, and stronger domestic defense, among other things.
President Tsai also says that products made in Taiwan are becoming more appealing due to the trade war between the United States and China. In the future, Tsai wants to make domestically made products a focal point.
Tsai says she’s hoping to shift the focus away from Taiwan’s parts and components industry. Instead, she wants the words ‘made in Taiwan’ to inspire people to think of advanced technologies like green energy and artificial intelligence. [FULL STORY]
